Last week I got the opportunity to chat with Jeff Kinney about fatherhood and his Diary of a Wimpy Kid book series. Tomorrow the latest book in that series called The Deep End comes out. It is the fifteenth book from that wonderful series. My daughters really enjoy the books and the movies. My father-in-law loves the movies too! He has big laughs when he watches those movies with us.
Below is a preview of my conversation with Jeff. In this clip Jeff shares with me what The Deep End is all about and how this year influenced Greg Heffley and his family’s new adventure. You can hear my entire interview with Jeff next month. It will be part of the Art of Fatherhood podcast series.
